of the "huffington post." thanks for joining us. >> thank you formation me un. >> eliot: polling is more than picking up the phone, calling 12 random people and adding up who said what? >> increasingly, when i started in this business 25 years ago you could do something like that. you could get a scientifically random sample, a few reasonable steps to make it rigorous and not have to do a whole lot of waiting or adjustment afterwards. now there have been a combination of things. lower response rates the whole cell phone problem basically two-thirds of us have two kinds of phones. another third roughly have a cell phone only, and it's a whole lot harder to know what the odds are getting someone over one phone or another. pollsters are having to make a lot of assumptions one way or another about either about the demographics of who they interview or the mechanism that they use to select it. >> eliot: i want to break this down a little bit. the moment you talk about waiting some answers more than others you're putting into play an opportunity for the pollster to exercise discretion that may be correct o
intrangedent. joining us tonight is jake sherman, the congressional core -- coarse upon independent for political. what does it mean for next week? will they get a deal? >> house republicans are saying they are not going to increase rates. they don't have the votes to do so so they are going to go to the white house, but john boehner even said recently this is going to be long talks. is the first round of negotiations after the election but what is important to keep is mind is that john boehner has already back pedalled from where he was in 2011. he wasn't even willing to entertain the revenues he is willing to entertain in 2011. if you remember in 2011 when things looked like they were getting done the meetings were secret. >> jennifer: so in fact i want you to listen to a sound bite from house speaker john boehner this morning. >> the members of our majority understand how important it is to avert the fiscal cliff, and that's why i outlined a responsible path forward, paving the way for entitlement reform as well as tax reform with lower rates. >> jennifer: so
the economy. he went shopping. he went to costco here in washington, d.c. and showed us with his own costco card and showed up witha firewood and a t.v. and apple pie. god bless america. lots to talk about this morning. let's find out first what's going on. here is the latest from lease a ferguson out in los angeles. hi, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. well, president obama is taking his fight over the fiscal cliff today heading to hatfield, pennsylvania. he is going to tour the rhodon group manufacturing facility. >> that's a place the white house says is one of the many businesses that depends upon middle class shoppers this holiday season. rhodon manufactures connect brand. that time group sells toys like angry birds building sets and tinker toys. at the end of the year, as i am sure you know by now the average middle class family is facing a 2,000 dollar tax hike. on monday of this week the white house released a report saying that could be americans spending $200,000,000,000 less in 2013. the president will continue
and be ready to go against the grover norquist pledge. more bill press after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an viewer created ad message for little caesars who proudly salutes united states veterans everywhere. >> clarksville is a small town on the tennesse/kentucky boader and it is a really great place to raise a family. my name is lloyd allard i was a chief officer in the special forces, i was in the army for 23 years. i have made 1400 parachute jumps. well, my experience in the military was varied. i spent a lot of time in iraq, a lot of time in kuwait. i did two tours in iraq and i decided it was time to do something different with my life. i saw little caesars as a way to give something back to my family. the little caesars veterans program provides financial support and equipment when you open your store. the little caesars veterans program give me a sense of ownership and pride in my business because i am the owner of this business. as a former military person i did not have the business experience and little caesars provided the training and support along the way t
of of the drug policy action, the choice of us who care the drug wars is a choice between a disappointment and a disaster. romney from everything i can see, everything that he believes in and not flip flop on is the war on drugs. he could be the worse in the war on drugs since president bush. if the democrats take both the senate and the house, which is unlikely, i think we'll see serious movement forward. i think we'll see the emergence to evaluate the state of drugs in this country. we'll see more openings and inside and it's begin to go percolate, but i won't hold my breath for major reform. >> war on drugs success or failure. >> a monstrous failure. you look at people who are serving time. you look at mexico. it's about the failure of the prohibition. >> what is it about our inability to equate evidence with our own theology, our ideology, democrats and republicans who have held strung to this, being stuff in the war on drugs despite overwhelming evidence of failure. >> part of it, we managed to build up in america a prison industrial complex a massive one. i hope we don't have to wait

in american history. tomorrow, we'll open another. it's a story that continues to hold us in awe a government of the people by the people for the people. we come from factory and farm, from foreign lands where freedom in america are seen as in exorablely linked. we are connected in all manner of ways unseen. there will come a moment tomorrow between anxious and celebration, between hope and despair where this country will do something so rare and special that history has no precedent against measure it. it will once again defer to the will of the people who will freely choose who they shall be governed by and our remarkable story will continue. >> the fight is as old as this country itself, the battle for that most basic right of every american, the right to vote. the most contentious battles are waged in the swing states of ohio and florida. in miami this weekend voters waited up to nine hours to cast in person absentee ballots only to have election officials shut down the polls because they claimed not enough have resources or staff to be able to complete the job. one voter shut out after w
to update us on the latest in this jill kelley tampa socialite, that whole thing. >> it wouldn't be a day of news if we didn't have a jill kelley real housewives update. >> who couldn't have seen that coming? there's a love connection to bubba the love sponge. >> that was the obvious next step. >> stephanie: it just gets betterrer and betterrer. here's jacki schechner. >> good morning. unfortunately, there is no sign of violence easing up yet between israel and hamas. at least 21 people are injured. three seriously after a bomb exploded on a bus in tel aviv around noon local time. witnesses are telling us authorities they saw a man running toward the bus tossing a bag and running away. police have launched a massive manhunt and believe the explosion is a terrorist attack. israel continues its assault on targets in gaza with more than 100 hit overnight. militants in gaza are firing back having launched an estimated 200 rockets back at israel. jay carney has released a statement from the white house administrat
involvement in this. they're going to broker a deal. this has been a tradition of the u.s. to come in when tensions flare to work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not one that just lasts a couple of years. >> first thing that struck me when i saw that hillary clinton with benjamin netanyahu was it didn't matter that netanyahu backed romney. all of that time wasted, all of that money wasted perhaps. speaking today with netanyahu. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there. israel saying some of the conditions that they want out of this cease fire would be having no more rockets fired out of gaza. soldiers patrolling the frontier would, in fact, not be attacked. weapons, stockpiles
washington university. thank you for joining us, professor. >> pleasure, eliot always. >> eliot: it seems so tantalizingly closer. a cease-fire was about to be announced. you've been through the process before. can you infer or suggest or understand what would be a sticking point at this late moment? >> part of this is probably one or both of the parties haven't got man they need out of current crisis. i strongly suspect it is probably on the hamas side where they're looking for assurances that if there is a cease-fire, there will be some relaxation of the israeli blockade and obviously israel is in no position to grant such a wish as long as there are rockets that are continuing to rain down on the israeli population. >> that seems like such a fundamental issue. do you think israel will agree there should be a cease-fire if it in any way relaxes the blockade. the blockade has been central to its approach to hamas. hamas is a terrorist organization internationally recognized as such. it would seem to me israel wo

what? it's unpatriotic. maybe finally maybe finally the rest of us, the rational among us have reached a breaking point when we're not going to be willing any longer to get the shrill voices of extremism trump the scientific ones. when we'll listen to those who warned us for decades that we need to act. the latest version of bloomberg business week has this simple and brilliant cover. it's global warming stupid. this storm has ushered in an unprecedented national conversation about climate change. we cannot squander this opportunity to shift the trajectory of the conversation and the future of our planet. afterall the climate itself has already changed. governor andrew cuomo said as much in his remarks today. >> i don't believe anymore that this is once in a lifetime or once in 100 years or once in a generation or just a fluke. you look at the number of devastating floods, the number of devastating fires the number of extreme weather patterns is going up. that is a fact. that is a fact. >> jennifer: it is a fac
to fill in some more details on shifting u.s. economic and security forces toward southeast asia and the pacific. but the visit is overshadowed by other international issues in the spotlight. amongst the asia pacific community, that would be the battle over the south china sea which involves china cambodia and the philippines. while that's one of asia's biggest security issues right now, it's paling in comparison to what's going on in the middle east. fighting between israel and hamas continued again yesterday. the palestinian death toll is now up near 100 and many of those people are civilians. president obama and bill clinton both took to the phones yesterday, speaking with benjamin netanyahu of israel and president mohammed morsi of egypt. the main word they're using is de-escalate telling the two nations to scale back the violence but so far neither side is willing to cease-fire unless the other will bend to their demands. egypt does have a peace tree with israel which is why that country could be the key in pu

franklin roosevelt announced to the nation that the japanese had attacked us at pearl harbor, i wonder if the republican party said i don't know. is he really telling the truth here. did they really attack us and why did they attack us? you don't ask those kind of questions. you fight back. in this case, mitt romney leading the republican party decided to make it all political and thanks to fox news, they're still trying to make it all political. and susan rice, not even nominated yet as secretary of state and she may not be. obama could decide to go with john kerry or jane armen or who knows who else, right? susan rice has to go up to the united states senate today and meet with -- she will, meet with john mccain and lindsey graham and a couple of other senators and try to explain herself. she shouldn't have to do that. i think it is embarrassing. kevin is calling from chicago. what do you think kevin? >> caller: hey, how do youing, bill? >> bill: good to hear from you. >> caller: if they were a legitimate news orga

's collateral damage. if palestinians kill civilians they're abhorrent terrorists. when israel or the u.s. does it, it's ok, collateral damage. i find it grotesque. there's of course always another side, and i want you to watch a part of bbc report where they show where some of the rockets going into israel came from. >> it's been a noisy morning from down, really, we heard the thuds of israeli air strikes continuing all morning just within the last minute, really, there was a large explosion to the north of here, just to the north of gaza city, close to the coast road and at the same time, we've seen the vapor trails of dozens of rockets being fired by palestinian militants into israel. >> cenk: to be fair, as you just saw in that report, you see israeli shells coming in, but rockets being fired from heavily populated areas in the gaza strip, hence israel says i can fire back into your civilian areas and if kids get killed, that's not my fault, that's your fault. that's israel's perspective. who winds up getting killed more? israel has more fire power. three israeli's killed, 19 palestinians.

he fixed his tax return so he could pay a little bit more in the one year he revealed to us, he was paying 13% 14% taxes on hundreds of millions of dollars of wealth. and he's going to talk about the gift that -- but let me say this. i think it is very important to understand when he says that immigration was a gift, we worked tirelessly and you and i both know we demanded this of our president. we wish he had done it earlier. was it smart politically to do it? was a great public policy? that's what was essential. let me say this. mr. romney we passed the dream act 216-208. 55 u.s. senators stood up in the senate to pass the dream act. what the president did was the will of the people transmitted through their legislative body. you're just angry because we were able to get over your filibustering in the senate. >> eliot: that's exactly right. the interesting thing is the republican party at least those who are thinking about the future are rejecting mitt romney's view. they're saying this is a world view of th

. >> obama: tonight in this election, you, the american people reminded us that while our road has been hard while our journey has been long we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back and we know in our hearts for the united states of america the best is yet to come. [ cheers ] >> but it wasn't such a good night for the republicans who can't seem to get it. poor things. they have got their blinders on. they have got their feet in cement. they are still refusing to acknowledge that the world has evolved; that their universe of while maleness deficit obsession, zero tax pledges, and their 20th century love affair with trickle down is no more. the world has changed, the american people have grown. minorities are occupying a larger and larger sector of the government. women have been able to vote for a while now. people understand when they have been given the shaft, and yet the republicans have their fingers firmly inserted in their ears, eyes closed granting nah, nah, nah, nah, because what they really believe is they can make up for the changing demograp
